on the trail. president obama visits wisconsin, nevada and colorado for the first campaign since sandy hit. >> we can't go on the road we're on. we can't change course in america if we keep on attacking each other. we've got to come together and get america on track again. >> reporter: the race is still a dead-heat. the daily abc news/"washington post" tracking poll show the candidates tied among likely voters at 49%. the same poll found president obama's response to the superstorm positively. 78% say mr. obama's handling the situation excellent or good. the president toured storm-ravaged new jersey with republican governor chris christie. >> hang in there. >> reporter: the governor, usually one of the president's harshest critics had nothing but find words for him. >> he's worked closely with me. and i can't thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state and the people of our state. >> reporter: both the romney and obama campaigns think they're winning. the obama campaign points to the president leading or tied with romney in the eight closest battlegroun
stop each in florida and new hampshire and nevada, matt. >> chuck todd at the white house, let me remind our viewers, election night coverage will come to you from democracy plaza here at rockefeller center. it will be open to the public starting tomorrow. >> we want to return to the gridlock that's being caused by the storm. nbc's kerry sanders is above yonkers right now. >> it is truly a test of patience as we take you down over yonkers here. you can see the line backed up. what you're looking at here are check points to make sure that those driving into the city -- that's the henry hudson parkway, are actually following the rules. those rules are, three people per car. well, as you know, there are some people who think they can skirt by. so they're doing the check points and they're exiting some of those cars off the road. you can see how it's backed up. add to this the cascading effect that people are low on fuel because the gas stations are not all operational. gas stations this morning have more than a mile long wait to get up to get fuel. so folks who are trying to get in a
